Our take on the Sony BDP-SX910 by Crutchfield's David Brown
Blu-ray goes portable
As your Blu-ray collection grows, isn't it time to take those discs beyond the TV room? Sony's portable Blu-ray player means you don't have to leave HD behind anymore. The sleek BDP-SX910 extends the reach of your favorite movies to the car, the plane, the hotel, or Grandma's house. The high-definition 9-inch LCD screen swivels 180 degrees, so you can find the perfect viewing angle in any setting. Use it as a TV/Blu-ray combo in your bedroom. Or hook it up to your HDTV via the HDMI output for use as a stand-alone player to deliver sharp, 1080p images to your big screen.
Enjoy movies, photos, and music anywhere
The BDP-SX910 plays DVDs and CDs as well as Blu-ray discs. It will even make old DVDs look better with video upconversion. Insert a thumb drive into the USB port for viewing photos and home videos, or listen to MP3s through the built-in speaker or the headphone jack. Convenient, intuitive touch keys on the screen frame give you easy control of the player's function when the included remote is out of reach. When the show is over, just flip down the screen and you're ready to take it on your next getaway.Need headphones? Check out our selection.
We love it. It works great for long car rides
